School Council

Welcome to the School Council page
The School Council is composed of 2 representatives from Year 1 to Year 6 and  Mrs Cartwright, one of our members of staff, attends meetings.

Every year elections are held at the beginning of October and the outgoing Council induct the new members into the practices and procedures of the School Council.

During September prospective candidates for the posts are nominated by their peers who then make posters to promote their skills, qualities and campaign policies to the rest of the school.  The candidates also make key note speeches in their classes.  Everyone in the school then has one vote for two councillors which they make on ballot papers on Election Day.  At the first official meeting a Chair, Vice Chair and a Secretary are elected.

The school council meets at least once a week, and considers many aspects of school life.  In the last 12 months they have been involved in writing and sharing an E-Safety leaflet and organising improvements in the dinner hall as well as  fund raising events such as a school disco.  They also regularly discuss school issues and factors affecting teaching and learning and share information through presentations in assemblies.
